Good to see some of my fellow Findlay folks here on 11W.

It was a good read. We play them next week so I'll be seeing plenty of film on him this weekend.

Platooning: have an athlete play in rotation with one or more teammates at the same position.

If it is part of a personnel package as I described the Leak/Tebow deal, then yes maybe Urban does that. But it would be limited. Knowing there is another QB on the sidelines that is just as good as the starter, I would think that defensive coordinators need to be aware and prepare for both regardless. The backup is only a play away from being in the game as we saw last year. DCs do not gameplan this because there is typically a drop off from the #1 to the #2.

As I said before, it is not a good idea and QBs hate it unless it is very limited. Both have said as much.

DJ, I tried finding you on Facebook so we could be friends but couldn't find your profile. I even searched "Dilbert Juan Byrnes" and got nothing. What gives?

I don't blame them. Platooning QBs is a terrible idea. Part of playing the position requires getting in to a rhythm during the game. It's difficult to do that when you play a couple of series and then have to sit for a while.

The Chris Leak/Tim Tebow comparison is brought up regularly but they were not platooning. Tebow was only brought in based on a specific personnel package.

I was curious about a couple of things. I wanted to know what the other team's shoes looked like and also who else sold out quickly. There are some nice designs and some not so good. But the more important thing is OSU is the only team that has sold out of these shoes so far.

Either someone at Nike was bad at forecasting the demand and missed out on additional revenue or OSU fans just flat out love their gear more than any other college fan (I know which theory I'm going with).

I'll actually get an up close look. The HS team I coach plays Leipsic this year.  He's a big dude

This was over 6 years ago and the NCAA and each conference have their own sets of rules for testing so I don't know what it is like now. For us it was completely random who was chosen to test. I was never once tested. Usually the trainer would find out the night before and would give the guys being tested a heads up. I remember seeing the guys who used PEDs sitting around in a dorm room chugging vinegar all night.

My only point with that comment is to shed light on how common smoking weed is for athletes, which is probably why they have to fail more than once before the public even knows about it.

This is no surprise. She must have finally opened all the nudes I sent in the mail.

You know what AV really needs?
